The short answer is yes. All persons who are owners of the property must sign the listing contract because all of them have to agree to sell and all must participate in the transaction.

I would recommend you take a look at RSMo Section 505.300. It deals with the landlord's obligations regarding security deposits. If you have any questions, you should consult an attorney.
My ex partner and I bought a house together 13 years ago. She lived in the house for 3 months then left. She has not paid any of the mortgage, taxes, repairs ect. We only paid $2500 down at the time of mutual money. I want to refinance but she refuses to sign quit claim deed. What are my options?

If your ex refuses to sign a quitclaim deed, your other option is filing a court action for partition. It is a generally a short process but it carries several risks. You should definitely consult an attorney about the pros and cons to see if it is in your best interest in your circumstances.
And not pay the realtor commission?

If your agent used the Missouri Department of Real Estate form there is a space filled out that sets out that time period. If you’re unclear, have the contract reviewed by an attorney.

Nuisance properties are often regulated by local (city or county) ordinance. You can usually find those online, along with the agencies who receive those complaints.
My ex husband retained the home. He is claiming the bank won't refinance him to remove me from the mortgage without me signing a quit claim deed first.

In order to refinance, your ex's bank will require you to release your interest in the property, but only at the closing of the refinancing. That will take place at the office of a title company when your ex signs the documents refinancing the home. You should not sign a quitclaim deed without... Read more »

The answer to your question is generally found in the will itself. Most wills provide a time requirement for the personal representative to provide reports to the beneficiaries. Definitely no less than one time per year. If there is no such provision in the will, you and the attorney handling the... Read more »

If your father's estate value is under $40,000, it is considered a "small estate." The procedure for distribution of assets in a small estate is governed by Mo Rev. Stat. Section 473.097 and the statutes references in that section. If you have any questions you should consult and attorney.

It will depend on how their names are listed on the account. Things as simple as “and” and “or” can make a big difference. It is worth a brief conference with an attorney to determine your daughter’s rights to the account, especially if it can avoid the necessity of filing probate.

After a tenant moves out, the landlord does not have a duty to store the tenant’s property. Landlord has to make the property available to the tenant for a “reasonable “ amount of time (maybe a few days), then the property is treated as abandoned by the tenant and can be disposed of.
This seams illegal and in fair to just wait the 7 days and not respond and just send cancel request . Do I have any recourse to make this contract still stand?
answered on Nov 25, 2020
The answer to your question is in the contract language. If you used the forms prepared by the Missouri Association of Realtors, the time to send the Inspection Notice and receive a response (including cancellation) is contained in paragraph 7D. If you are unsure, have a lawyer look over the... Read more »
4 months before her death she transferred over half of the trust out of it. There is not near enough to pay what the will states now. Am I liable to sell items that were left specifically to others, ie, her house, car, etc, to make up that money?

Your responsibilities as trustee are very important and handling your aunt’s estate in these circumstances can lead to other issues. You really should sit down with a lawyer to review the trust documents and make sure you do it correctly.

When a rental property is sold and there is a written lease for a term already in place on that property, the new owner takes the property subject to the lease. So your lease would still be in place, provided it is in writing.
If I was single when I purchased the home, do I list single for the seller and then put married for the grantee section so it matches the original deed?
answered on Nov 5, 2020
If you are making no other change than adding your wife, use a Quitclaim Deed. Grantor is you, no marital status necessary. Grantee is you and wife, husband and wife.

That part of the trust describes how your assets should be held. Usually in the name of the trust, which will follow that phrase in the trust document.

Depending on the language of the easement itself, you are probably able to make improvements to the easement. Whether that includes installing speed bumps will depend on the language of the document and whether the other easement holders agree. You should have an attorney review the language of the...

A quitclaim deed only transfers your rights to a property. It will not transfer your obligations, including obligations under a mortgage.
The money from the inheritance was deposited in an account in my name only. Do I have to give my husband half the money from the sale of the house?
answered on Oct 2, 2020
You should carefully review and track your inheritance with the help of a family law attorney. They should be able to confirm whether it will constitute your separate property.
